I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

We Got A Hair Situation !!!!!! Code RED

Hey Guys,

I was a chirpy little bird going around my day all happy with pollinating my way around the world when I had a rude awakening... fast forward back to human life and I was holding up some of my shed hair to make sure it was not breaking or anything when I saw them... SPLIT ENDS!!!! and they were everywhere.....
I almost  had a freak-out session.... so so sad.. but eventually I decided to take action and just get rid of all the split ends. No point in keeping them  because they will just keep on splitting and stay raggedy..

I guess it is understandable as I have not had so much as a trim in over a year. Even when my hair was relaxed, I got a trim at least twice a year so I just may have brought this on myself :(
My hair stylists lives far far away and I was not sure I would get a chance to see her anytime soon. So I decided that I would go ahead and just give myself a trim.. (Insert OH LAWDY LAWDY LORD face here).

One of my favourite youtuber Naptural85 has this amazing tutorial on How To Trim Your Own Hair  so I watched it and tried my best to re-do what she did.


I ended up taking off about an inch in some places and even more in other places ...YIKES!!!!! It is definitely  not uniform, but I hope that I at least got most of the split ends off


My ends feel soo much smoother, and not as raggedy and ugly as before...
Hopefully I would be able to pay my hair stylist a visit soon and she can probably help fix my now jacked up hair shape... lol
